    I’m amazed at how clean the shapes are, the cuts are sharp and very well placed. Wang brings (again) something very innovative to fashion.
    And I’m in love with the white jacket in the first photo (and a shorter, black one as well).

      It’s so good, right! Also the black jacket in look 22. There’s something about this collection that gets me excited for spring clothing, which for me is unusual. The layering aspect is important… and it still feels so clean.

    I particularly loved this show because it is the type that everyone comes away trying to pin-point an inspiration, a starting point or references in general. I could list off quite a few myself including: Tron, x-ray vision and robots but these clothes are camoflage for a woman in a concrete urban jungal. I was blown away at the effortlessness and execution of the peices, the way the separate sections of fabric seemed to hover on the models bodies. An amazing show from a true forward thinker – KUDOS Mr Wang!

    Visually this is intriguing and inventive.

    However I wouldn’t have enjoyed watching the show live (or being in it) because I would have been on the edge of my seat worrying that a “wardrobe malfunction” could occur at any moment.

    The clothes seem rather precarious don’t you think?

      Precarious, yes, but that’s partly why they are so sexy. And don’t worry, everything is held securely in place with a kind of melt-proof fishing wire.

    Nice concepts but I wonder when a woman might wear something so see-through. Plus, didn’t Ms. Versace do transparent seams a couple seasons ago?

    Wow! I am in love with this collection.
    The white with the clear sections of the clothes look beautiful!

    That clothes make me remember Azzedin Alaia. A great designer, by the way.

    A really sharp collection. But this is one of those that is more for inspiration and beauty instead of for wearing for real women. Take the black dress: any woman with even small size breasts couldn’t wear this–it would be too revealing from the side. Most women aren’t shaped like models…and probably don’t want to be. But I’m a guy, so perhaps I’m wrong here.

    I think the designs are really modern but crazy. I love crazy stuff.

    I can imagine these sandals being the next hype for fall, but I’m not really convinced by the dresses yet. I feel you really have to be super skinny to wear them

    The eternal question: is fashion supposed to be wearable or just a statement?

    This is what this collection makes me think.

    Interesting pieces, spectacular shoes, clear, bold lines, but all in all, who would daringly wear these clothes without layering them?

    A big kiss from Greece!

    I LOVE Alexander Wang!!

    Visually striking but is this collection wearable by “normal” women ?
    The white coat, probably.
    Great creativity and execution.

    Wow! How incredible is this collection. The textile reminds me of paper being cut out into shapes. Love it!

    I love the lightness of these garments. They just seem to float around the models. It makes me wish it was still July so I could dress like this!

    I love the shoes , but they look so uncomfortable… It makes me think, when the fashion meets the comfort and viceversa

    I see a Cubism influence: the cuts simultaneously deconstruct and construct, and the different viewpoints created.

    These dresses are so awesome, especially number 2 and 3!

    these dresses are rad, and i love the high strap on those shoes. while revealing, the dresses seem flowing enough to handle many different body shapes. i hope the “normal” woman mentioned in other comments take these looks on.

    This, to me, is a statement that says exactly this: remember The Future?

    For the past decade+ design as a whole (fashion, graphic, interior, architecture, etc) has been looking back for inspiration.l This, in my opinion, was a reaction to the whole Y2k hysteria. Towards the end of the 90′s- for those that can remember- design was centered around “The Future,” and a bit of pre-millenium tension permeated everything. Fashion, specifically, embraced minimalist forms with utlitarian leanings. Many new synthetic fabrics were being implemented, and the shapes and embellishments were almost inspired by a survivalist mentality. People didn’t know what to expect come the turn of the century.

    Then, at midnight on January 1, 2000, when nothing happened, I feel the reaction became ANTI-Future. Around this time (2000-2002) we started seeing a return towards a more…used look (for lack of a better term). Think The Strokes, with their rumpled, 70′s, slept-in look and faded denim EVERYWHERE. Further into the decade, plaid and flannel made a resurgence, and with it, a more classic Americana look. Into the 10′s, that Americana look went even deeper, with heritage brands coming to the forefront, and everyone in Williamsburg pretending it was the 1920′s.

    But viewing this Alexander Wang show says, “Enough already! Let us turn our eyes towards the future ahead of us once again.” A rather bold statement, but a very necessary one

    I am in love with this collection. The first thing I thought when I saw this was Fifth Element. Amazing.
